That's not a comparison

Da do do do da dah dah dah is all I've got to say to you


Multiple songs of genius

When they kick out your front door

How you gonna come?

With your hands on your head

Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in

How you gonna go?

Shot down on the pavement

Or waiting in death row

You can crush us

You can bruise us

But you'll have to answer to

Oh, Guns of Brixton

The money feels good

And your life you like it well

But surely your time will come

As in heaven, as in hell

You see, he feels like Ivan

BORN under the Brixton sun

His game is called survivin'

At the end of the harder they come

You know it means no mercy

They caught him with a gun

No need for the Black Maria

Goodbye to the Brixton sun...&c.

The Police were toss, even if Copeland is an excellent drummer.

The Clash were brilliant and make me wish I was older that about 3 when they were in their pomp.

Can't see why the two should be compared directly though. Just cos they were about at the same sort of time? What next? Dead Kennedys and Abba?

The Clash for me all day long, although I think Copeland is a great musician, for the intro to 'the Equilizer' alone which is up there with the great TV theme tunes...like Magnum PI!
